Ok so I’m feeling generous and was thinking why not giving away a Assassins Creed 3 download coupon before the end of the world :p.
So beforehand I’m looking for some suggestions on a fun/fair maybe festive way to choose?

You can ask people to post... then use a site like random.org to determine which number wins :D

Minimum post count: 10,000 seems fair. :rofl:

You should use a random.org so it is fair. Make a minimum post count from the start date to avoid someone coming along then spamming to up their post count to be eligable.

Perhaps asking people to do a comic strip based on AC. A 25/50/100 words or less why they deserve the coupon (although I've always hated those). Favourite moment from the AC series.


That is all I've got.

Ask people to post once in a thread then use http://www.random.org/ to generate random post number to determine the winner. People that posted more than once to increase their chances, are disqualified (you can see who posted more than once by clicking on the replies numbers of the thread). Year+ membership or 1000+ post counts limit seems fair.

I think it should be given to the first Native American who posts that has a cool name. That would be me. Lo Tec. Yeah me. I win!. :p

use random.org and make the join date only those people who have been a member of Neowin for longer than a year

Its not fair to penalise people who are members for years but don't post, many people do not like to post lots on forums and prefer to lurk

I like the 10k post minimum rofl its so fair :p

@compl3x like that, maybe a AC holiday poster?

The Random.org suggestion seems fairest, although a little lacking on the fun/festive factor.
